Double Bluff – 1994

Category Overview

Washington is famous for its gorgeous and abundant waterways, from the Salish Sea to the Nisqually River, but many communities lack open public beaches and waterfronts where everyone can enjoy picnicking, swimming, paddling, boating, and angling. Water Access projects fund public shoreline access, boat launches, and fishing docks to create more opportunities for water recreation.

Project Highlights

Addition of three acres of waterfront on Useless Bay to provide access for over two miles of publicly owned tidelands. Project is located on southwest Whidbey Island, five miles south of Freeland.
